What makes kids laugh?

What do I enjoy most about teaching kids? Making them laugh. I learned a lot about making kids laugh from doing magic and from other magicians. Here is a link to a article for magicians, but you can apply it to teaching kids as well. Some of the points he makes are:

  1. Treating and object like something else
  2. Calling an object by a different name.
  3. Name play
  4. Make up sentences.
  5. Thing that don’t belong together.
  6. Physical comedy.
